Dental Implants
Roslyn Heights & Manhattan NY


Dental implants from Edward I. Jutkowitz, D.M.D., P.C. - Periodontics and ImplantologyRoslyn Heights, NY.Thanks to improvements in technology and techniques, people with missing teeth have more replacement options than ever before. Whether you are missing one tooth or many, we here at Edward I. Jutkowitz, D.M.D., P.C. - Periodontics and Implantology believe dental implants are the ideal solution. In fact, implant-supported restorations provide a number of benefits over more traditional replacements like bridges and dentures.

The Three Components of a Dental Implant


•  The Implant Post: A dental implant is small titanium post, or screw, that we place underneath the gum tissue and into the bone. Because we surgically embed the implant deep within the jaw, it serves as the root component of a prosthesis.
•  The Abutment: An abutment is metal support structure that links the implant post to your restoration. We usually place the abutment during a follow-up surgery. It may also be possible to receive an implant and abutment during the same procedure, depending on the restoration.
•  The Restoration: A single implant is attached to a dental crown. A series of implants can be used to support a partial fixed bridge, complete fixed bridge, or other full-arch appliances like dentures.


Implants and Osseointegration


Regardless of which restoration you receive, the general implant process is the same. Once an implant is place, it immediately begins to fuse to the living bone during a process called osseointegration. Osseointegration is responsible for many of the benefits associated with dental implants.

It may take several months to a year before the implant completely fuses to the bone, depending on how fast your body heals. Once osseointegration is complete, we can move forward with treatment, place the abutment, and fabricate your final restoration. Because the implant becomes a part of your biology, your new restoration should look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth.

Implant-Supported Dental Crowns and Bridges


A dental crown is a single-tooth implant solution. As with other implant restorations, your crown will likely be fabricated using porcelain or zirconia. Both dental implants materials possess the light-reflective properties of enamel and should look just like a natural tooth.

Zirconia may be the ideal solution for patients that need a more durable crown to restore posterior, or back teeth. Regardless of your restoration’s makeup, most implant-supported crowns will last several decades. With the right care and maintenance, your dental implant could even last a lifetime.

A dental bridge is a series of crowns that “bridge” together an open space created by one or more missing teeth. A conventional bridge is supported by the two surrounding teeth, which we reshape and cap with the crowns. A implant-supported bridge, as you can probably guess, relies on a series of implants.

For most fixed partial bridges, we need to place an implant post for each missing tooth. If this is not possible due to bone deterioration or a misalignment, we can suspend a pontic, or false tooth, between two posts. A fixed complete bridge, on the other hand, can require as many as eight implants or as little as four.

All-on-4


All-on-4 is a name-brand treatment concept developed by Nobel Biocare, the industry leader in dental implants. This revolutionary technique allows us to place a custom-made complete bridge with just four implants. As a result, All-on-4 lets people with less bone in the jaw receive implants without a bone graft first.

Thanks to a reduced number of implants, we can perform your implant surgery and place your restoration during the same appointment, giving you a brand-new smile in a single day! Other advantages over traditional removable dentures include:
•  Improved Esthetics
•  Improved Comfort
•  Improved Convenience
•  Improved Confidence
•  Unmatched Durability and Longevity
•  Better Long-Term Oral Health
